In pictures: 42nd Street wins West End Bake Off

The third annual event was held in Covent Garden this weekend

West End newbies 42nd Street have won the third annual West End Bake Off.

The show's company were crowned winners by judges Arlene Phillips and Janie Dee at an event held on Saturday at St Paul's Actors Church in Covent Garden.

To win the event, which is held in aid of theatrical charity Acting for Others, 42nd Street had to see off competition from other West End productions including Kinky Boots, School of Rock and Les Misérables

Commenting on the winner, Phillips said: "It is possibly the most spectacular baking spread I’ve ever seen in my life! There is so much to look at. Everything is perfectly, visually baked and the work they put into that is extraordinary. Talk about 42 hours, it must have taken 142 hours!"
